Dental Implants Options

  • Single Tooth Replacements - are relatively quick and simple, as one tooth is replaced by one single implant.
  • Multiple Tooth Replacements are an implant retained “fixed dental bridge”. Dental implants are permanently placed in the jaw then connected to the abutment crowns.
  • Full Arch Replacements. Some dentists refer to these type of implants as “full mouth restorations.” A full arch replacement is a permanent, long-lasting, and functional alternative to removable dentures for people who are missing most or all of their teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Over-dentures - are anchored by full-size or mini dental implants for superior function and stability. They can be removed daily to ensure proper cleaning and maintenance.
